Joyce's Group's story

Joyce N., a widow, is one of the executive members of Kewerimidde group, working as the payments’ controller. She is a strong, hard-working lady, managing all manly duties like fishing using her late husband’s 3 boats and it is a paying job except that these days the fish are not easy to come by.

Joyce is also a farmer with various food plantations for both home consumption and for sale; she also has 3 Fresian cows at home for milk and she has a ready market for that milk with her daughter, in S.6 vacation, managing the sales. Joyce's husband's passing left her to provide for 10 kids, and one of her greatest achievements is being able to educate her children with no one below the level of S.6. Joyce needs a loan to help with buying fishing nets and employing labor on her farm for fast and high quality yields.
